Chateau de Pierreux Brouilly 2006
Gamay from Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Medium purple and ruby color. The nose speaks off blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry and other small red fruits. The mouth has sweet tannins and is rich of floral flavors as iris and violet. There is a good balance between a lovely freshness of fruit and velvety of tannins.
Food Pairing: When young accompany with eggs in red wine sauce. In a year or two it will be a perfect match for tender poultry.
With nearly 200 acres of vines, this is one of the largest Beaujolais estates. This Brouilly is ripe, raspberry-flavored, with fine sweet fruits and a tight core of tannin. The essential acidity is well balanced.
